Savani elected to board of International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences

Film director Manu Savani, President of Gala Entertainment Corp., California, has been elected to the board of The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The Academy gives out the International Emmy Awards.

Savani is actively involved with Indian films for television in East Asia. His company is a leading distributor of Hollywood films in the South Asian and African markets.

Savani’s family has been involved in the film business for more than 70 years. His father began distribution of Indian films in East Africa in 1930, and his brother had pioneered distribution in the UK in the 1950s.

Savani began his career in the late 1960s in the US with Shakti Samanta's ‘An Evening In Paris’ in 16mm. In 1997 he opened the first Indian cinema multiplex in the US, Fox Theater in Covina, Los Angeles. He was also the first person to start an Indian TV programme in the US called ‘Cinema Cinema’ in New York in 1976.
